Scholarships

Thanks to strong community support, over $160,000 in scholarships are available to new, returning and transferring UW-Washington County students each year. 

 

What is a Scholarship?

Scholarships are monetary gifts from community, private, and campus sources and are usually based on academic merit or some other criteria. Some scholarships also require verification of financial need, therefore, all scholarship applicants are strongly encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Campus foundations, local businesses, and other sources provide scholarships for students at the University. No repayment of scholarships is required.
